“Tiny Tim meets the gritty story telling of Lou Reed. Songs of avenging zombies, ukulele bumblebees, possessed pianos and a certain air of quiet, small town romance, against an impossibly beautiful backdrop of chook-shed instrumentation”. – Michael Dwyer, art and music writer

Hailing from the Blue Mountains NSW, King Curly is the invention of local singer/songwriter Steve Appel – a long time enigma of original Australian music.
After many absences from the stage, building alternative-design mud houses, King Curly re-emerges to showcase new songs.
Appel is a true creative. His songs and his buildings are beautiful and relevant to the times.
King Curly has toured throughout the world – by invitation with acts as diverse as K.D Lang, Paul Kelly and The Cat Empire.

The band also features Steve Grieve on guitars and Johnny Graffham on pedal steel.

Come and join us for the Blue Mountains launch of ‘Songs’ in this beautiful setting. Recorded largely live as a trio, ‘Songs’ is a new collection released song by song with accompanying home-made lockdown video clips.

COVID capacity limits are in place and we advise booking quickly to avoid disappointment!
